Question about Maidenform Flexees

4 Answers

How do I get Maidenform to replace or refund for elastic-defective Flexee ultrafirm hi waist brief 83061?

The elastic started popping with the first wearing and by the second wash, the garment was no longer capable of delivering any "girdle-like" control because of failure of the elastic fabric due to broken threads. Walmart would not accept the return and a package mailed to Maidenform at 200 Madison Ave. in NY was returned to me, "Attempted, not known."

Making an elastic waistband? How to.


Hello!

There is more than one way. This is an easy way to make an elastic waistband on mid to lightweight fabric.
Begin by measuring the waist diameter and subtracting 2" from the measurement.
An easy way to make an elastic waistband is to sew the ends of the elastic together, creating a loop with the elastic. Be sure there are no twists in the elastic before sewing the ends together.
Fold the elastic in half using the seam as one edge and mark the other side with a pin. Fold the elastic in half again and mark the two other folds.
Your elastic should now have 3 pins and the seam quarting the circle.
Hopefully your pants have a center, back and two side seams, making the next step easy. If not, fold and mark the front back and sides like you just did with the elastic.
You're now ready to pin the elastic to the OUTSIDE of the pants. Line up the edges of the fabric and elastic. Match the marks on the elastic to those on the pants and pin them together.
Using a quarter inch seam, stretch the elastic between the pins/quarter marks and sew it in place.
IF your machine has a lightening stitch, use that. If not a zigzag stitch will wear better than a straight stitch, which will also work but may snap if used on a stretchy fabric.
After you have attached the elastic fold it to the "inside" of the pants taking care not to fold or bend the elastic. You have just created a nice finished top edge to your pants!
Giving the elastic a stretch so it fits the fabric, pin the front, back and sides like you did before, making sure to pin the lower edge of the elastic.
Stretching the elastic to make it fit the pants, stitch the lower edge close to the edge, again with a stretchy stitch if possible.
Next stitch the top close to the edge from the front. (I know it's already attached, but this will keep the top looking nice.) 1/8" looks nice, but just make sure your distance to the edge is consistant.
Sit back and admire your handy work! You've now got the elastic sewn on and there are no exposed raw edges.

If you are working with a heavier fabric let me know and I can explain how to make a casing for the elastic. The kind you thread the elastic through.

I bought Gloria Vanderbilt shorts with elastic at the waist and front and back pockets.


What do you mean replaced? The whole shorts? Or just the hem?
if yiu are a sewer you could replace the hem etc with a nylon blend of material as a contrast. But rayon will ALWAYS need ironing.

Cant remember how to refit the sun shade


Hi,

The sun canopy has a length of elastic at either end with a turn-over that is stitched in place. These lengths of elastic need to be pushed past a nub of plastic inside the sunshade rim around where the handle of the carseat is joined. Pull them past the nub of plastic and release, and the turn-over will prevent it popping past the nub. Tuck in the sunshade around the rim.

How do I sew Elastic waistband with Husqvarna Viking 910 Surger


I am assuming this is a simple stretch waist band with elastic about 2cm wide attached to a skirt or trousers. You need to measure your wist and cut elastic that length plus 2cm. Then join the two ends by overlapping them 2cm and zig zagging the elastic together with regular sewing machine. Now mark the elastic in quarters, ie hold it flat with the join in the middle and mark each edge with chalk or a fabric removable marker. Then put the marks together and mark the edges again so you have 4 marks equally spaced. Now do this for your garment too. It may be bigger in back so mark front and back, then half this to find the side quarters. Put elastic on inside of garment against raw edge and pin the quarter marks on elastic and garment together. Set up overlocker for 4 thread wide seam. Test seam and adjust tensions if necessary. Now you need to serge the edge of the fabric and elastic together, trimming the fabric but not cutting the elastic and stretch the elastic to fit the garment as you stitch. Elastic on top, fabric right side down underneath. Take out pins before you get near them! Start by lifting the front of the presser foot with your finger and placing fabric and elastic under, then start stitching on and straighten up once the seam is onto the elastic. Dont lift the pressure foot, you just stitch, stop, stretch the elastic to the fullness of the fabric, hold it and seam forward a few inches, then stop and repeat the process. Once right round go over your starting point, then turn and serge off the fabric edge and chain off. Cut, pull the chain to pull it flat and tie a hald hitch in it right up close to fabric. Now turn the elastic band to the inside of the garment. You need to secure it. Usually a straight stitch just onto the lower edge of the elastic with sewing machine from outside.

My husbands Bruno's have an elastic material by the lip of the shoe. Each shoe has two of them. All of them are starting to unravel and tear. How can I get the elastic repaired/replaced? The rest of...


Elastic gores do seem to wear out first, especially if shoes are snug.

Latex rubber elastic starts as a natural plant product so will decompose on its own over time. Repeated stretching hastens the process, as does normal environmental exposure (extreme heat, sun, humidity or overly dry conditions are worse!) and accidental smudges of shoe polish, shine and/or cleaning products.

Ask your local Cobbler or Shoe Shop to fix them for you. They will remove the old elastic and stitching, and replace it with fresh elastic.

While the shoes are in the shop, they'll inspect for other, less noticeable worn areas of the shoes. The support of soles and heels may be compromised by the time elastic shows wear, affecting comfort levels.
